What better way to welcome the spring season in March than a hike, or snowshoe adventure, at Mueller State Park.
Snow or shine, we will bid farewell to winter and embrace the new season on March 19 with a hike led by Volunteer Naturalist Jim. We’ll search for signs of spring and the changing of seasons on this 1.5-mile easy hike. Of course, this is Colorado and we know what that means so dress for all weather possibilities.
Fans of Mueller know we’re not afraid of the weather and the solitude of winter makes the park a great place to get away from it all. We help you do that by offering winter hikes and snowshoeing during March.
Guided hikes scheduled for March range from 2 to 5 miles and from moderate to more challenging in duration. Hikers should check snow conditions before venturing out to determine if snowshoes or spikes are necessary.
We also have another Forest Bathing Walk on the calendar in March. Join Volunteer Naturalist Carrie and Forest Therapy Guide Jane for this mindful, easy wander with simple “invitations” for activities to awaken your senses and connect closely with the forest.
A word of advice. Trail conditions in winter can range from dry, to 2 feet of snow, to snow packed and icy. Snowshoes or micro-spikes and poles are usually recommended. You can check for conditions at: www.cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/parks/Mueller. Or call the Visitor Center at 719-687-2366.
